3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden clear amber with a small head that vanishes leaving little or no lacing. Not surprising in a beer that is low in alcohol and in body. Wonderfully hopped, spicy and bitter, with a long bitter finish. A wonderfully refreshing session beer.

Bottle. Golden beer with a light head. The aroma is fruity, and citrus, the flavour is lightly dry and sparkling fruit. Overall a beautiful and great refreshing beer.

A dark orange beer with a thick dense off-white head. The aroma is fresh with a lovely note of hops, making it very fresh. The flavor is fresh with a nice crisp malt accent on which is a nice hoppyness giving it slight hints of grass and lemon. Very refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 500ml. short narrow neck brown bottle with a blurb on the back, no bottled/freshness date.
Made a decent appearance, poured a clear orange hued golden with a foamy white head that settled into a thin lacing, moderate carbonation.
Had a lemon fruity, light spicy, leafy and sweet caramelized malt nose.
A crisp, smooth light bodied mouth feel, good drinkability.
Leafy, earthy and slightly herbal hoppy taste at first, followed by sweet caramelized maltiness, then lemony tea-like hops kick in and a sweet lemony, leafy and malty finish.
A nice English IPA from Harviestoun, tasty and smooth, well worth trying.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Was the Baird supping this ale while contemplating a worthy sonnet! "Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day..." A pale golden beer that conjours up memories of halcyon days in summer meadows with fair country maidens. A beer with a hoppy boquet including notes of hay and a citrus twist. A most excellent bottled beer and highly recomnded.
